KSI says he’s ‘the man’ to end Jake Paul, but admits boxing rivalry makes relationship with Prime Hydration business partner Logan Paul ‘very awkward’
Jake Paul has been tearing his opponents apart since entering the boxing world, but KSI thinks he’s ‘the man’ to stop him.
It all started when KSI beat fellow British YouTuber, Joe Weller, in 2018 and after claiming victory, ‘The Nightmare’ called out Jake and Logan Paul.
Logan accepted the challenge and the pair instantly became enemies, as they engaged in two fights, the first ending in a draw but KSI prevailed in the rematch.
This meant that KSI then moved on to Jake, who had forged his own path in the boxing ring, beating KSI’s younger brother, Deji.
However, the fight did not materialize immediately, as KSI decided to step away from boxing and focus on music, while Jake began calling and beating former UFC stars.
But now KSI is back and he plans to fight Jake at the end of this year.
When asked on talkSPORT Breakfast if he was ‘the man’ to end Jake, KSI replied: ‘Yes, 100% I am the man.
“That’s the reason I came back and through every fight I do, you’ll see I’m ‘that guy’!

“I really, really love this whole boxing scene, it gives me purpose, it’s my passion right now, so I just want to keep going and eventually get to Jake Paul and knock him out.”
That being said, it leaves Logan in a slightly awkward position.
Since battling KSI, the pair have become friends and business partners, co-founding Prime Hydration beverage company that took the world by storm, while also starting a podcast together.
But, of course, the American is also loyal to his brother Jake.
“Yeah, it’s very embarrassing,” KSI admitted with a laugh.
“Logan knows it’s happening, it’s happening, and when me and Jake fight, he’s obviously going to support his brother because it’s his blood.
“But, ultimately, we’re going to find out who’s the best of the best when it comes to this YouTube scene.
“And that rivalry has been bubbling and building for years and years.”
For now, luckily for Logan, he won’t have to choose sides, as on Saturday night KSI won’t be fighting Jake, but instead will face American social media star Faze Temperrr.
